    Well finally my girls decided to get off "chicken welfare" and start to pay rent. I got my first egg today! Now the other girls need to step up to the plate and start laying themselves! [​IMG]

    Some here these hens need to shape up or ship out only one egg yesterday out of 11 hens ! :mad: the most I have gotten this month is 3 I only have three hens laying. Everyone is coming out of the molt though so I should start getting eggs soon the marans and faverolles are starting to show intrest in the nest boxes again and so it the EE ! This is the end of the plain ol' brown eggs days hopefully because thats all I have had for a month is plain brown eggs!

    Congrats!
    I guess no one told my girls that they should be cutting back due to the shorter days because I got 9 eggs from 10 hens today! Our best day so far. [​IMG]

    Thanks all... Sorry, no photo. I had to get to work and by the time I got home the kiddos made it into corn muffins! [​IMG]

    We did get one more today, late in the afternoon when my oldest found it, but it was not there this morning. With all hope they keep going! I have removed the wood eggs from the nest box and so far it's two for two in the nest boxes so they like them I guess.
